Lionel Messi Scores Again Thrash Charlotte To Reach Leagues Cup Semi-Finals

With a 4-0 drubbing of Charlotte FC on Friday, Inter Miami advanced to the Leagues Cup semi-finals thanks to another goal from Lionel Messi. Eight goals have been scored by Messi since he joined Inter Miami.

A recent Leagues Cup quarterfinal game between Inter Miami and Charlotte FC saw Lionel Messi score his eighth goal, continuing his amazing scoring streak with Inter Miami.

Inter Miami triumphed convincingly 4-0 in the match, which took place in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Messi had a rather quiet night despite the high expectations that come with being one of the best players in the world, scoring just once in the closing minutes of the contest off a cross from Leonardo Campana.

However, his presence on the pitch helped lead to an own goal in the second half, which basically pushed Charlotte FC out of the game. Since Messi’s arrival, Inter Miami, who is now last in the Major League Soccer Eastern Conference, has experienced a major turnaround.

Since Messi made his debut in the opening round of the competition, the squad has a record of four victories and one draw, and it has already moved to the semifinals of the Leagues Cup, a competition that includes all 47 teams from Major League Soccer and Mexico’s Liga MX.

Inter Miami will make their first appearance in a continental competition if they win either the semifinal or the third-place game, qualifying them for next year’s CONCACAF Champions Cup.

Charlotte FC, on the other hand, found it difficult to have an impact on the game, finishing with only three shots and failing to have a shot on target before halftime. They performed similarly to how they did during the regular season, when they gave up a league-worst 40 goals.

Messi has helped Inter Miami outscore its opponents 17-6 in the competition in addition to scoring eight goals. He has also contributed three assists. With goals in the 12th and 32nd minutes, respectively, his colleagues Josef Martinez and Robert Taylor also played significant roles in earning the victory over Charlotte FC.

Tata Martino, the manager of Inter Miami, decided to keep Messi on the field for the final few minutes of the game even though his team had a three-goal advantage. This choice was rewarded with Messi’s one-touch goal in the 86th minute.
